Holding a title as one of the best guitarists in Nashville has to mean that you've achieved something akin to legendary status in the music world — and that's exactly what Buddy Miller has done. Born in '50s Ohio, the singer-songwriter took the stage for the first time in the '60s as an upright bassist in high-school combos. Since that time, Miller has produced, written, recorded and played enough music to have fellow legends such as Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris describe him as one of the greatest musicians alive.

Miller was joined for this session by Grammy-winning singer Patty Griffin. Though Griffin and Miller have collaborated on previous occasions, they recently teamed up for Griffin's Downtown Church, which Miller produced. In turn, Griffin lends her talents to Miller's recent solo album The Majestic Silver Strings, which also features contributions from Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot, Greg Leisz and more.

Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin join World Cafe host David Dye from this year's Cayamo Cruise. Here, the two talk about the power of music and their work together on both albums.
